This staircase is a mystery to this day. Constructed in the late 1800's, this staircase was created to reach the choir loft in the Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The carpenter was unknown and left after completion without pay and as mysterious as he showed up. With two 360* turns the staircase has no visable supports and has no nails, only wooden pegs holding it together. You can read up more on this fantastic staircase at:
